New Discoveries Of The Week: Cool New Things I'm Trying, Books I'm Reading, And More!
– A Good Alternative To Uncomfortable NAD Injections
I'm rarely getting NAD injections anymore. They're a bit uncomfortable and nauseating, and – although wonderful for mitochondria, energy levels, sleep, cognition, longevity, and much more – just a bit of a pain. So I started using patches instead, which I leave on for 5-6 hours for a slow 400-500mg of NAD to enter my bloodstream. I like NAD delivery this way because it gets me better delivery, particularly to the brain, and I feel the effects in a far more profound way than NAD, NR, or NMN supplements. Anyways, I order my NAD patches from the NAD injection clinic in San Diego. You can go listen to my podcast with them and get their contact info here. See the video below for how I do it.
I've gotten some questions about how these NAD patches work from the "NAD Treatment Center" in San Diego. These are an alternative to NAD injections and it's pretty simple. In this video, I'm going to show you exactly how I administer these patches. To get all the info on the benefits of NAD for anti-aging, to hear from the NAD experts from the clinic in SD and more, just click here: https://www.nadtreatmentcenter.com/ or call (844)623-7587.

-Book I'm Reading
Author Arthur Haines is a forager, ancestral skills mentor, author, public speaker, and botanical researcher. He's very well spoken and has tons of practical experience in foraging, wildcrafting medicine, and primitive living skills. His new book, “A New Path,” is an epic tome that delves into the contemporary life-way of humans in an attempt to reinstate our biological norms.
The book presents the forgotten species' norms of Homo sapiens and, by combining historical observations of hunter-gatherers with modern evidence-based research, tackles the mythology of improving life through technology and provides guidance on many important aspects of human health, including diet, water, medicine, awareness, nature immersion, movement, hormesis, community, and ancestral technologies. It's a very enlightening read and a valuable addition to my library. You can get it on Amazon here.

::: Join The Same Olive Oil Club I'm In :::
Dr. Steven Gundry joined me on the podcast last week and one thing I really joined him in his opinion on was his devout, adamant belief in the health benefits of olive oil. He went so far as to say “the only purpose of food is to get olive oil in your mouth.” Wow, that's a bold statement! Well, frankly, it's not far from the truth. There are tremendous health benefits associated with olive oil. But not just any olive oil. Olive oil is available in a wide range of qualities, and what's worst, it is being completely faked.
Naturally, since olive oil is such a staple in my diet, I went on a quest to find the highest quality olive oil possible, which is when my friend introduced me to the fresh pressed olive oil club I still use today. Right now you can join the club for just $1! Pay just $1 shipping and receive a $39 bottle of artisanal olive oil direct from the newest harvest. For flavorful, fresh, high-quality olive oil, look no further than the Fresh-Pressed Olive Oil club.

Featured Product: Kion Clean Energy Bar
As a busy CEO, coach, professional athlete, international speaker, and top 100 podcast host—I needed a bar that would meet the intense demands of my lifestyle, while also satisfying my strict nutrition and purity requirements. I’m happy to say, THIS IS IT.
After years of habitually eating low-quality protein bars, I started having elevated blood sugar, gut rot, energy swings and toxins present in my blood tests. So I wanted to do something better. I wanted to learn how can a bar provide adequate amino acids for recovery without spiking insulin and glucose, or creating mTor and longevity issues from excess protein intake?
You're about to discover exactly how I did it. Meet the Kion Clean Energy Bar.

Back when I was 21 I toyed around with natural bodybuilding. I put on 34 pounds of muscle in college (from 181 to 213) then weighed in at 189 for shows (I’m 6’2”). Lately, I’ve been experimenting with putting on muscle mass in a far more healthy way than I did back then… Namely without sucking down energy drinks and whey protein with every meal or eating an extremely low fat diet. Link in bio if you want to read my exact muscle building protocol I’m now using, along with pics. #musclebuilding #bodybuilding

I'm often asked if I'm concerned about my hefty intake of canned sardines, mackerel, etc… So Wild Planet hooked me up w/ this infographic showing results of 3rd-party testing of PPM of #mercury in the #fish. I'd say as long as I don't take up a swordfish habit, I oughta be OK. pic.twitter.com/jz5qIuEHO8
